  • Donald Trump denies climate change--but fears it could hurt his golf course

    Donald Trump has said he doesn't believe in man-made climate change and has called global warming a "hoax," but he's trying to protect a golf course he owns on the coast of Ireland from its effects. The presumptive GOP nominee applied for a permit to build a seawall next to Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland in County Clare to prevent erosion, according to Politico. His application included an environmental impact statement that explicitly mentions "global warming and its effects." According to Politico's report, that statement says that rising sea levels in that region could accelerate erosion. The statement...

    Search crews located the data recorders for EgyptAir Flight 804 close to an area where human remains and debris from the crashed flight have been found, an Egyptian government source told CBS News on Saturday. Egyptian media, including state media, were reporting the same development, CBS News correspondent Holly Williams reports. Late Saturday, a U.S. intelligence source confirmed to CBS News the data recorders, commonly known as black boxes, have been approximately located by their pings and that recovery efforts were underway. There has been no official confirmation, and EgyptAir wouldn't confirm or deny that the black boxes have been...

    Rarely does one person in the White House have the influence that Valerie Jarrett has had. She holds the job title of senior advisor, but she's more than that. The president has said she's his best friend. She told us she's involved in nearly every decision that's made, including the choice of his chief of staff or who should sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. And that has sometimes caused friction in a White House that prides itself as being no-drama. As the president enters his final months in office, we talked with Valerie Jarrett about her role, the president's...

    During a May 14 commencement address to Old Miss graduates, retired news anchor and journalist Tom Brokaw said, more guns will mean more homegrown acts of terror. Tom Brokaw lamented the continuing expansion of gun ownership and the success of gun rights organizations that support that expansion. According to The Commercial Appeal, Brokaw referenced the homicide rate in Democrat-run Memphis, Tennessee, then said: Im appalled by the determination of organizations and individuals to arm more people without any appreciation of the consequence of evermore lethal weapons in our midst. More guns and more firearm tolerance will mean more homegrown...

Safer was the longest-serving correspondent in "60 Minutes" history. He joined the CBS program in 1970, just two years after it launched, and worked there ever since, contributing 919 reports over the years. He filed his last report in March.

    Full title: 'NCIS' Star Sean Murray on Michael Weatherly's Final Episode and New Beginnings: 'People Are Afraid of Change' It's the end of the road for NCIS' Michael Weatherly. The 47-year-old star bids farewell on Tuesday to the longtime CBS procedural after 13 seasons and more than 300 episodes playing the charming goofball, NCIS Special Agent Tony DiNozzo. Though Weatherly acknowledged that the end was inevitable, jokingly telling ET's Kevin Frazier earlier this month that he "should've left years ago," his co-star and friend Sean Murray remains hopeful for the occasional cameo.

    It wasn't quite the Red Wedding, but Thursday brought viewers news of more than a dozen prime-time shows being axed to make room for new programs next season. ABC took the sword to seven series (including country music drama "Nashville" and veteran whodunit "Castle") while Fox is sacrificing five freshman shows, including comedies starring aging pretty boys Rob Lowe and John Stamos. Meanwhile, CBS is deleting "CSI: Cyber" after this, its sophomore season, thus laying to rest the "CSI" dynasty that encompassed four series during a 16-year span.

    John Dickerson was one of the better moderators we saw during the campaign season. He asked solid questions and follow-up question, didnt editorialize and kept the trains running on time with multiple candidates to juggle. This space gave him an A for the way he handled a Democratic presidential debate back in December. But an interview with Hillary Clinton that was broadcast this morning on CBS Face the Nation was not only profoundly disappointing, but even disgraceful particularly for someone as seasoned as the 47-year-old CBS political director and host. Never have there been so many questions to a presumptive...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said in an interview airing Sunday that GOP front-runner Donald Trump may encourage riots if he does not win the Republican nomination in Cleveland this summer. Asked on CBS' "Face the Nation" if he was concerned about the possibility of violence if he were able to "overthrow" Trump with the delegates in Cleveland, Cruz insisted there wouldn't but said that Trump might try to fan the flames. "No, it won't, although Donald may do everything he can to encourage riots," he said. "You know, overthrow is such a loaded spin word as ... to bring nothing...

    Here’s what is most unusual about this week in news coverage of the GOP nomination drama: what’s not the top story of the week. On April 13, ABC’s World News Tonight correspondent Tom Llamas devoted most of that night’s report to chilling death threats against the Colorado state Republican party chairman, angered at how Donald Trump failed to win any delegates at the weekend party convention. Besides that one report, and two minor mentions (one on ABC’s Good Morning America and on Thursday’s CBS Evening News, that’s all the broadcast news attention given to reports of actual death threats in...

The uniquely American forms are all there, all untouched, all reassuring, the football games, the local bars, the movies, the concerts, and the holidays. But the spirit, which most of us never noticed because we made the lifelong mistake of identifying it with the forms, has been fundamentally transformed. The transformation has occurred through the slowly creeping separation of not only the government from the people, but the people themselves from their country. It has taken place...

    The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has asked a Ted Cruz super PAC to explain why it gave $500,000 to another super PAC supporting one of his Republican rivals. According to financial disclosures from June, Keep the Promise I - one of four separate committees backing Cruz - gave half a million dollars to CARLY for America, the political action committee supporting Carly Fiorina. Super PACs are legally allowed to give money to other super PACs - they are only prohibited from donating directly to any political campaign. But it's unusual for one of these groups to give money to an...

    Pro-life leaders are used to being accused of hate speech by Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton, and campus feminist activists. But they were surprised to hear Dr. Ben Carson seem to agree that they spewed "hateful" and "immature" rhetoric on Sunday. When CBS moderator John Dickerson asked Dr. Carson whether Planned Parenthood was right that pro-life rhetoric had led to Friday's shooting inside a Colorado Springs abortion facility, the doctor readily agreed. There is "no question the hateful rhetoric exacerbates the situation," Carson said on "Face the Nation." Pro-life advocates quickly rebuffed the notion that they had pushed 57-year-old Robert Lewis...

    Last Sunday's edition of CBS' 60 Minutes featured the first ever interview with Allan Gross, the U.S. hostage held in Cuba's prisons for five years. Gross was a contractor for USAID (United States Agency for international Development) who was arrested in Havana on Dec. 9, 2009. His "crime" was attempting to provide Cuba's Jewish groups with satellite internet equipment. Gross was held in KGB-and designed dungeons for 5 months where he lost over a hundred pounds. In March 2011 he was finally "tried" (by a judicial system lifted lock-stock-barrel from Stalin's during The Great Terror) and sentenced to a further...

    In the month of October alone, Israel suffered 609 attacks. The world's only Jewish state has suffered almost daily attacks from their Palestinian neighbors (mostly stabbings) after unfounded rumors of changes on the Temple Mount were circulated over social media. Yet, the big three ABC, NBC, and CBS found it hard to blame radical Islam for the surge in violence, as noted by the Media Research Center's Newsbusters division:3 Month Failure: Nets Make No Mention of 'Islam' in Israeli Terror Attacks In the three months leading up to the ISIS's deadly Paris attacks, the ABC CBS and NBC evening news...

    Executives from several television networks held a conference call on Monday to discuss Donald Trump's campaign treatment of the press, but no immediate action is expected to come from the first call, sources familiar with the call told POLITICO. Another call is scheduled for this afternoon. Representatives from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CNN discussed how embeds and reporters from outlets are being treated, including being pushed into media "pens." The Washington Post was first to report on the conference call. It's unlikely a formal unified message will be sent to the Trump campaign unless all the networks agree on...

    So Stephen Colbert turns out to be just as much of an a-hole as "Stephen Colbert." Viewers have noticed. After an initial burst of interest spurred by CBS's big-bucks saturation advertising campaign for "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," the show's ratings have tanked and it is now running third in late night behind NBC's Jimmy Fallon and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, who rarely has managed second place before. The reason? A survey by the Hollywood Reporter found that conservative viewers are turning off Colbert in droves. Nearly twice as many Republicans are watching Kimmel as Colbert, who has turned "Late...

    CBS correspondent Tracy Smith visited with Governor Sarah Palin at her home in Wasilla, Alaska. CBS’s Tracy Smith began her interview in a harsh fashion, asking Palin if she felt "like a loser" in the aftermath of the 2008 presidential election. The Governor didn’t hedge her response, "Well sure, you either win or you lose. It’s like dang, I wish I could have added more, contributed more positively. Maybe there was no chance that we were going to win anyway." Smith pressed her assault, "Do you feel like you’re to blame for the loss in 2008, cause people do blame...
  • Paris terror attacks will shift CBS News' focus at the Democratic primary debate

    CBS News is changing its game plan for Saturday's Democratic primary debate in the aftermath of the Paris terror attacks. The debate questions prepared earlier this week by CBS News political director John Dickerson and the network's congressional correspondent, Nancy Cordes, were designed to burrow deep into the candidates' views on domestic issues such as the Affordable Care Act and gun legislation. But once the news of the deadly coordinated killing rampage in Paris circulated late Friday afternoon, the moderators and producers started planning a greater emphasis on security in the debate queries. "This becomes the first segment," said Steve...

    We live in a weary age of fable. The latest Hollywood mythology is entitled "Truth." But the film is actually a fictionalized story about how CBS News super-anchor Dan Rather and his "60 Minutes" producer supposedly were railroaded by corporate and right-wing interests into resigning. In reality, an internal investigation by CBS found that Rather and his "60 Minutes" team -- just weeks before the 2004 election -- had failed to properly vet documents of dubious authenticity asserting that a young George W. Bush had shirked his duty as a Texas Air National Guard pilot. The fabulist movie comes on...

    The professional punditry amid the Main Stream Media -on both sides of the political continuum- continue selling a narrative that Donald Trump is the easiest candidate for Hillary Clinton to beat. This pitch is based on their gaslighting claims and "opinion" and not reality. Poll after poll shows exactly the opposite. In addition to recent polling showing Donald Trump beating Hillary in NC, FL, SC, VA, MN, OH, TX and NV - Democrats, by a wide margin, fear Donald Trump more than any other Republican candidate.
  • Map: Two countries get 75% of all U.S. spending on foreign military aid

    The United States spent a total of $5.9 billion to fund militaries around the world in 2014, according to the government’s 2015 Foreign Assistance report. Of that total, some 75%, or about $4.4 billion, was divided between Israel and Egypt. Clearly, the Middle East, at 64% of the pie, is the theme here, with Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon also found among the top 10 recipients. Closer to home, Colombia led the Americas with a relatively scant $29 million. Still, that’s enough to place it ninth overall on the list.
